Im 33. I was active duty militay 4 years and reserve for 7 years. Deployed twice to iraq. I have been building tires for 7 +years now. I had my daughter kaitlyn in 2009. Soon after i started feeling the pain. I knew i had scoliosis s curve. But never a proper diagnosis. I started seeing a doc. i had a pars defect as well l5 s1. degenerative disc disease and my vertebrae over lap each other when bend. Didnt understand it then and dont now. I could not bend sit or arch. Laying on tummy was the worst pain indured. I took 7 months out of work fue to the fact they would not claim it workers comp. They claimed it as birth defect. I got to feeling better. I was told by one doc that it would heal. Found out by another that it doesnt. I havent a clue. I ended up getting 70 percent disability for it. Went back to worK. I used my arms and upper back more that i developed muscle spams and nerve irritation in the upper back left shoulder blade. Could not lean back at all. That finally calmbed down. Now my left side lower or thoracic has been swollen for quite some time. Now it is tingling and feels like my rib is braking in two. Had another xray says still pars defect l5 s1 but osteoporosis and arthritis has develiped. Ive been having the saratic nerve symptoms. Which bothers 5he back of my left knee. Now both knees have been swelling my feet have been red flaming hot and ice cold my hands the same. My hands have tingling non stop. Cold water makes it worse i think. They say carple tunnle but the brace turn my hole hand blue. Like my blood flow is poor. My oxygen level is 100% but i seem to be getting out of breath like its maybeore of my heart. I used to do insanity and stoped because it felt as if my arteries had inflamed afterwards. All blood work and urine samples says everything is good but glicose is high. I feel like im going crazy but something is not right and dont know what to look at Or for. Oh and my underarm hurts. And easy to infections seems like. I got cellulitis from a small cut. My pointer finger had a cut. The whole thing swelled and got red and hot while the rest of the finger where cold as ice while working. Am i insane
